Diesel & Duke Montclair (Right across from Bay Street Train Station, near Montclair State University) serves mouth watering burgers, poutine, fries & dessert. We offer take out, delivery, or swing by to eat in and enjoy our free WiFi. Vegetarian options available!
This place makes a fantastic burger. It’s flavorful, not too salty and not too greasy. A lot of other places I find that the bun gets soggy before you finish your burger which is gross, but not here! The fries are also amazing; they are wonderfully crispy and not too greasy and they give you quite a bit with the small order. I’ll be back when I have a burger craving 🙂 Thanks for a great product!

Simple burger dinner right. Best place for a burger in the area. The fries are on point as well. We will certainly be back.
02:14 07 Oct 18
Third time here in a month! Burgers are awesome and you can totally BYOB! Both the holypeño and the breakfast burger are delicious!
12:59 01 Oct 18
Hands down one of the best burgers around. If you haven't tried them, you really are missing out.
23:52 09 Nov 18
Really good burgers but the poutine steals the show!
18:36 02 Nov 18
Small shop with the best burgers in Montclair...really friendly staff keeps it on my short list of take-out places. Love how you can order & customize your burger via their mobile app. The Breakfast Burger is my favorite, but the whole menu is really great. Not a huge menu, but everything on it is fantastic, including the Ranger fries. Mexican coke, fried oreos w/nutella...and where else in NJ are you gonna get real poutine??!!
14:54 26 Nov 18
Great burgers and great folks working there! If only they offered tater tots or onion rings, I could give them a 6-star review!
02:56 27 Nov 18
My entire family agrees that Diesel & Duke are the best burgers in Essex county but certainly Montclair. Also delicious and the guys who work there are always pleasant! So happy they are here in town. PS the fries are awesome too!
23:41 01 Dec 18
This is our go to spot to pick up a burger. Their burgers are full of flavor, juicy, and the toppings hit all the right spots. The poutine fries are a must have, though I would recommend sharing with a friend. Their fresh cut fries covered in gravy and cheese curds. They also use real cheese curds instead of a lot of other places.
14:32 10 Dec 18
Never had a bad experience here. Close to the train station. Fresh juicy burgers mad with fresh ingredients. Try the poutine or the hangover poutine. You won’t be disappointed.
14:33 10 Dec 18
Diesel and Duke has the best burgers around! Always consistently good and ready to pick up when they say it will be. Owners are really nice and I like supporting this local business. Definitely a local gem!
15:07 10 Dec 18
The best hamburger I've ever had! Best fries. Best everything.
15:10 10 Dec 18
My family and I try new restaurants every month and we decided to try Diesel and Duke. We ordered three American burgers and three fries. I must admit it was the best burger we tried in a long time. The burger was cooked so well and the fries were perfectly seasoned. The food took only 10 minutes to be made and the amount of fries for a single person, could feed two. We decided to go back a few more time and the food was just as good, as the first time. We now have movie night every month featuring Diesel and Duke's delicious food.
20:05 14 Dec 18
Awesome burgers. So tasty and fresh. Good value too. But our kid didn't eat his burger. They need more kidfriendly portion.
22:27 15 Dec 18
I’ve had good Burgers, but that was GREAT!!! Juicy , Awesome Flavor, cooked well and done. Their Cajun Fries were just as great; Plentiful amount, fresh, crispy & seasoning was on point. I would Recommend this if you’re looking for a good burger spot in Essex County.
02:51 10 Jan 19
These are the best hamburgers anywhere, hands down. Juicy, perfeclty seasoned and on a bun that doesn't get soggy. Once you try D&D you're going to be really upset that they don't open at 7am every day.
19:59 19 Feb 19
Diesel and dukes is amazing when it comes to the food. The burgers are really great and even when we get take out, the fries are always really crispy. The only issue we have is that normally our order isn't ready when we go to pick it up. The last time we ordered, we waited half an hour and went over to pick up our food and it wasn't ready. Food is amazing, service can be a bit slow.

This is a small & cozy neighborhood burger place that offers a nice selection of burgers and a few sides, mainly fries. The various burgers with fixings are a substantial size and very filling. They also have vegetarian burger offering. The poutine, which I tried, was delicious and large enough for 2 or even 3 people to share. They offer a few soda selections and there is a small wraparound counter space with stools for dining in. Clean café with friendly counter staff.

This place was amazing. Nice simple menu. Wish there was an ice cream place nearby for dessert.
19:31 30 Mar 19
Ordered from Door Dash - the SPBB Burger. Never had a burger with peanut butter but it was simply DELICIOUS! Not greasy and jam packed of flavor. Cajun fries were full of seasoning and the fried Oreos were the perfect end to a great meal! Definitely will visit the store and eat here again soon!
22:22 31 Mar 19
This is our favorite burger place. My son loves it after a game. They have amazing burgers and please don’t forget the fries! Amazing!
00:17 14 Apr 19
Great burgers, I've tried four different versions and they've all been really good. Fries are also great. Also, as a bonus only place I know in the area that has poutine on the menu, for when you want something slightly different than Jersey disco fries.After 2 trips in 2 weeks, it has definitely been added to the list of places that we will head to when craving a burger.
17:09 20 Apr 19
Best burgers in town. Highly recommend the Smoke Show. Fried oreos were surprisingly very good. Never thought i would eat fried oreos, my niece insisted i try one then i promptly placed my own order.
03:49 24 Apr 19
Great burgers.. really enjoy the food.. They are the best burgers around.
13:21 06 May 19
This is one of the best burgers I've ever had. Ever.
20:23 31 Jul 19
This is my absolute favorite burger spot. Smokewhow if you like BBQ sauce. Delivery or pickup, either way you will not be disappointed the Diesel & Duke team are phenomenal on the grill!
12:23 07 Aug 19
Great burgers and fries! Service is also great. Tried their beyong burger and it was really good! Tasted just like a meat burger.
23:43 14 Aug 19
I had gotten cheese fries and 2 of my friends bought burgers and fries and we all really enjoyed our food. Would definitely go back and it there. I was a little upset when I found out that this location doesn’t have shakes. We would have to go to Caldwell.
22:38 27 Aug 19
Great flavor SPBB, Ranger fries and Poutine! They even have impossible burgers. Small quaint place with a smiling staff
01:26 07 Sep 19
One of the best burger joints in Montclair that I've gone back to over and over. I'm particularly fond of the breakfast burger. Poutine is also great.
05:45 10 Sep 19
probably the best burger I've had in years.
20:34 30 Sep 19
Great burgers, good customer service and price
14:53 30 Oct 19
Best burgers around. We are big fans of Shake Shack, but D&D is honestly better. Including the fries - and the portions are way bigger! Even the Beyond Burger is SO good. We look for any excuse to pick up burgers from here.

Great, small, made to order burger joint. Best in town. Can be a bit of a wait during peak times but certainly worth it.
02:54 21 Nov 19
Diesel & Duke is one of the best local burger joints around. Their burgers are the most heavenly thing I have ever tasted. Don't even get me started on their fries... If you haven't gotten a burger from there yet, do yourself a favor and drop what you're doing and GO. The food is good, their store is clean, and the employees are kind. Doesn't get better than that.
18:41 22 Nov 19
A charming neighborhood gem with killer fries and the perfect sized menu. It's takeout although they have a few chairs in-house. Be mindful of the dinner hour. You may wait up to 30 minutes as their kitchen is small.
01:46 20 Dec 19
Excellent burgers and AWESOME fries with a GREAT twist! The fried oreos as a dessert finished off a divine classic, but not so traditional, burger and fries experience!
01:37 23 Dec 19
Finally had the opportunity to try one of their burgers and fries and it was honestly amazing experience. the food was fantastic. one f the best burgers I've ever had. its about a 10 min wait for my burger with Cajun fries.
17:39 15 Jan 20
The burgers were great, as well as the cheese fries! Neat little place to go in for a quick bite to eat or take it to go. The fried oreos are definitely something try here! 👍🏼
00:52 29 Jan 20
Hands down my favorite burger spot. I’ve tried just about every item on the menu and have never been disappointed. Burgers are cooked fresh to order with a variety of topping options. Diesel and Duke also offers several delicious sides. The poutine is a must try!
23:09 16 Feb 20
You eat a Burger from here and you will question every burger you ever had in your entire existence BEST BURGER SPOT IN NJ too me they have the Impossible Burger never had it because I'm not Vegan but I bet even that would taste better than other places and they may not have the Gluten free option yet but get your Burger without the Bun and it's still better than any other Burger spots. 🔥🔥🔥
15:32 17 Mar 20
This is a fantastic place. Although it's a small space there is some outdoor seating. The ambiance is casual but classic and clean. The Holypeno burger was delicious and fresh. The Poutine (although not traditional) was great and I am Canadian so have had my fair share of Poutine. The fries were hand-cut. I can't wait to visit again soon.
23:38 09 Jul 18
Everything perfectly cooked. Delicious and greasy burgers. Amazing poutine. Lovely & cozy decor. Would go again.
15:11 23 Feb 18
This is the best burger I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve eaten a lot of burgers). Lots of options and they do fries right. The poutine is unique. I love this place.
01:59 20 Apr 20
Excellent food! Perfect servings. Fried oreos with Nutella is a must. Food always tastes fresh.
01:19 31 May 20
This place offers an amazing fresh burger with good fixings in a very nice, quiet area of Montclair. The people of the store were very nice and the overall decor and feel of the place seemed really appropriate for what they were doing,The small issue with this is that they offer primarily gourmet burgers, which some may not like as they offer only a small number of burgers and at a little higher than average price.If you can look past those things, they offer a very decent product and with a good environment that many people would be surprised by. I have never been down to the one in New Brunswick, but certainly this one is good in my book.

Delicious!! This falafel burger was absolutely worth it. Fries were great and well seasoned. Great location and service!
03:42 09 Dec 17
Poutine was delicious...just like Canada if not better! Also, great service 👍👍
03:36 16 Aug 20
This burger joint has some excellent choices at reasonable prices. The smokeshow, Holypeño and S.P.B.B. burgers are our favorite. We’re looking forward to trying the fried Oreos next time.
17:24 16 Aug 20
Love their burgers, always good. Our pup enjoys his special burger too. Family favorite.
20:05 09 Sep 20
Everything is so yummy!!
14:56 12 Sep 20
Wonderful experience great burgers. You must try them
01:42 29 Sep 20
Great local burger place with some nice wood tables outside.
21:22 20 Oct 20
Great food! Amazing service and the people are always nice. My personal favorite food item is the Smoke Show!
02:18 22 Oct 20
The burgers here are my favorite in JC, and I would put them on par with, if not exceeding, a Shake Shack burger. One simple suggestion - PLEASE add sweet potato fries to the menu!!!
22:57 09 Nov 20
Had one of the best burgers of my life last night from Diesel and Duke! The fries and fried Oreos were also excellent. Dreaming of the next time I can go there already...

Surely a place worth trying, the food is great and fresh, the costs are affordable and it is regularly clean there. Keep it up.
18:34 23 Dec 20
Really tasty and juicy burger. Nice combinations and you can add different toppings like fried egg. Love the fries. Reasonably priced.
15:18 02 Jan 21
I had gotten cheese fries and 2 of my friends bought burgers and fries and we all really enjoyed our food. Would definitely go back and eat there. I was a little upset when I found out that this location doesn’t have shakes. We would have to go to Caldwell.
04:19 19 Jan 21
The best burgers (I had to indulge in two) I have ever had! Very pleasant staff to interact with. I drive 40 minutes to come here!!! Would recommend the Jalapeno burger if you like spice - and the breakfast burger is to die for! Delicious fries are just the icing on the cake.Long story short: Do yourself a favor and try it.
